Laparoscopy is a procedure to look inside your abdomen by using a laparoscope. A laparoscope is like a thin telescope with a light source. It is used to light up and magnify the structures inside the abdomen. A laparoscope is passed into the abdomen through a small incision (cut) in the skin. A camera is attached to the end of the telescope and the image is viewed on a video monitor. Surgery is carried out while looking at this monitor.
When the baby is born, it is recommended that she be breastfed at the first available opportunity. That time is up to you and your doctor and is usually as soon as you and the baby are declared fit after your delivery. When your baby breastfeeds, she is ingesting colostrum (a clearish fluid laden with proteins and immunities). This fluid aids in preparing the digestive track for the mother’s milk and eventually solid foods.

These potential problems, if ignored and not screened proactively can lead to grave consequences like infertility and tumorous conditions. Hence, regular gynaecological screening is an integral part of a healthy lifestyle. These tests help in reducing morbidity by a definite diagnosis and quick treatment.
